CIAM presented original developments at the ICCM-21 in China
On 20-25 August 2017, specialists of the Central Institute of the Aviation Motors (CIAM, a subsidiary of the National Research Center ‘Zhukovsky Institute’) participated in the 21st International Conference on Composite Materials (ICCM-21) that took place in Xian, China.
A common thread running through all the speeches presented at the conference was innovations in the field of composites design and application. Thanks to their high strength, relatively low weight and corrosion resistance, composite materials are becoming indispensable in the modern aircraft construction. They provide for a better aircraft construction, enable to enhance its safety and to reduce fuel consumption.
The CIAM delegation was headed by the Department head of the Division ‘Dynamics and Strength of Aircraft Engines’, doctor of technical science, professor Telman Karimbayev. He and his colleagues presented reports on testing models made from composite materials and breakthrough technologies for the development of small-size aircraft engines’ components and elements from non-metallic materials.
The CIAM scientists also presented original developments in the field of application of composite and ceramic materials in aircraft engines.
‘Our Institute is conducting a range of studies on determination of properties of composite materials and methods of their application for developing modern and prospective engines. We consider it useful to discuss with our colleagues the latest practical work results connected with the usage of materials of the future for aircraft construction’, - commented Telman Karimbayev.
The conference allowed over 2000 academics from different countries to exchange experiences and take part in discussing perspectives of the new generation materials application for a wide range of industries.
